Description - A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson

Scottish novelist, poet and essayist Robert Louis Stevenson dedicated "A Child's Garden of Verses" to Alison Cunningham, the nurse of his early childhood years in Edinburgh--a time whose essence he strove to recapture in the sixty-four poems of this long-treasured collection. Here, in "The Land of Counterpane" and "The Land of Nod, " and in such delightful lyrics as "My Bed Is a Boat, " "Autumn Fires" and "Windy Nights, " are rhymes and images children and their parents have cherished together since "A Child's Garden of Verses" was first published in 1885. Alternately humorous and whimsical, grave and fearful, courageous and determined, the poems touchingly voice the many moods and currents of a child's imaginings. All sixty-four poems are reprinted in this edition in large, easy-to-read type. New illustrations by Thea Kliros capture the magical spirit of this beloved classic of children's literature.
